DASH is a very simple and fun game
who a triangle/square try to catch some triangle/square :D

--------- IFORMATION -----------

This is my very first game, i'm student and i'm trying this to have some fun in my first game jam
the deadline are really short for me, and i don't have the time to set a game - end, so to finish the game, you just have to press ESC
and the score will been shown in the terminal
i'm trying to be better in the next LD

The game is totaly coded by me, in C with a derivate of SFML and FMODEX

have fun , don't hesitate to comment ;)

SCORE system :

catch your form : + 5 points
catch your form AND you color : + 10 points

catch and other form, but it's your color : -3 points

---------- CONTROL ----------

Man, you really wrote this in C. fab! :D And you used SFML? Cool!

This spectrum graph is awesome and of course the music!!!

But could you please add a more comfortable key assignment? like WASD or Arrow Keys?

And could you please in addition for the Linux version add a launcher-script, that sets the LD_LIBRARY_PATH to the current directory?

Thanks bro !
I did this with an SFML modified library, called LIBLAPIN,
and the background spectrum with FMODEX
I just added a script in the linux version, i'm gonna modify the key assignment in WASD :D

As for a platformer engine I think it works well, just the two platforms on the same spot seems a bit weird. Could have a score added and some sort of thing to avoid, otherwise it's just an interactive screensaver where you cant die and just jump around.

Neat game, unfortunately I can't see my score or the spectrum analyzer on windows so it plays more like a trippy interactive music video. Grats for coding it all in C.

Very nice for a first entry! Keep doing some games!
Needed some scoreboards and some feedbacks for the player to see and feel what its happening.
Awesome song!

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
